Your new company
The services of Hays have been retained by our client, the Northern Ireland Housing Executive, to recruit a Maintenance Officer on an ongoing temporary contract basis to work from their offices in Newtownards.

Your new role
Reporting to the Area Maintenance Manager, you will ensure that maintenance repairs to Housing Executive homes are carried out to exacting cost, quality and time standards in accordance with the terms of contracts.

Your main duties will include:

To carry out inspections of properties to a set timetable in order to authorise the Housing Executive\'s Contractors to carry out necessary maintenance work;
To conduct inspections of properties, again to a set timetable, in order that works done are of an acceptable standard and that payment for such work can be authorised;
To advise tenants about maintenance policies and their responsibilities for the maintenance of some items in their homes or to provide information on the progress of works on their homes or the timeframe for such works to be done;
To draw deficiencies in the delivery of an effective maintenance service to the attention of the Contractor in the first instance in order that remedial action can be taken;
To liaise with other Housing Executive staff, particularly those involved in the allocation of homes, to ensure that houses vacated on changes of tenancy have necessary works done so that they can be re-let as soon as possible.

What you\'ll need to succeed
To be considered for this position, you must meet at least one of the following criteria:

A degree in Building Studies (or equivalent) with 1 year relevant experience;
A BTEC Higher Diploma in Building Studies (or equivalent) with 2 years relevant experience;
A minimum of 4 years relevant experience.

Relevant experience will be considered as working on the design, improvement or maintenance of domestic properties.

What you\'ll get in return
This position offers an immediate start with the opportunity to work with Northern Ireland\'s largest social landlord. You will be paid via Hays on a weekly basis.
The hourly rate ranges from £11.39 - £16.60.
The hours of work are Monday to Friday, 37 hours per week. Flexible start and finish times can be arranged.
You will also get 35 days paid annual leave including stat days.
